Notes from the Director - 12/22

Thank you for a wonderful concert on December 13th. I have received so many positive comments from students, staff, parents and patrons about the performance. There is a DVD of the night’s performance plus an audio CD that we will have available when we return. I am proud of the sound we have put together this year in all of the groups. There are some great things happening in the CHS band program and the students are the source. Thank you CHS musicians!

On Sunday, December 30th, the CHS pep band will provide the music for the OSU men’s basketball game. The game begins at 7 pm. We will be provided an OSU shirt and pizza. The CHS band room will be open that evening between 5 and 5:30pm for students to pick up their instruments. At 5:31pm our equipment will be moved over to OSU. We will pass out the OSU fight song to the CHS members, go over it a few times and then put on a show for the OSU crowd. This is an exciting opportunity for the CHS band program! Oh, and don’t forget to ‘dress’ for the holidays again!

Thursday, January 3 at 6 pm-10:00pm will be a CHS band program holiday party for CHS band members in the CHS band room, choir room and hallway. Movies, games, food, drinks, etc. will be available for the evening. Students will provide the movies, video games, board games and bring snack food and cookies. Drinks will be provided and maybe some ‘real food’ will be provided…TBA. There has been talk of having a ‘white elephant’ gift exchange and that’s always a hoot! So stay tune!
Parent chaperones will be needed to help with evening’s activities.

The first week of January will have a busy pep band schedule. There is a game on Monday, Jan 7th and a game on Tuesday, Jan 8th. Then the big games are on Friday, Jan 11th with CVHS. There are two games that night back-to-back. The girls game is at 6:00 pm and the boys game follows 20 minutes later. The band’s theme for the game is Crazy Spartan Attire in addition to your pep band t-shirt. Will the drum line have a rousing routine ready for the game? Let’s hope so.

The CVHS-CHS musical, The Sound of Music, will be presented January 17-January 20, 2008. Mark your calendars to attend one of the performances that begin at 7:00 pm.
